Eyes on Texas

LSU fans may want to keep an eye on what is happening in College Station these days.

The talk in Texas is that Aggies coach Dennis Franchione is working on a buyout of his contract as head football coach at A&M.

The other talk is that Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville is the top target should Franchione be gone.

This is not good news for LSU on a couple of fronts.

1) Under Franchione's watch, LSU and Oklahoma have enjoyed much recruiting success, particularly in East Texas.

2) Tuberville leaving Auburn would not be good for LSU because Tuberville will give Nick Saban a battle for the state of Alabama. A coaching change at Auburn would allow Saban to dominate the state. As it is, those two fighting over Alabama recruits is a good thing for LSU.
